Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies Wednesday seized marijuana from a Palm Springs outlet, as part of a four-county crack down on an organization accused of selling the drug for profit.
Deputies seized several products at Holistic Collective of Palm Springs at 2235 N. Palm Canyon Drive, starting about 11 a.m., sheriff's Capt. Ralph Ornelas of the Narcotics Bureau said.
"This organization is running it outside legal ramifications of what the law is meant to be with medical marijuana," he said.
Deputies with the Sheriff's Marijuana Dispensary Task Force raided collectives simultaneously in Riverside, Orange, San Diego and Los Angeles counties, Ornelas said.
The Riverside County District Attorney's Office assisted with the operation, but no arrests were made at the Palm Springs shop, Ornelas said.
Proposition 19, which on the Nov. 2 statewide ballot, would essentially legalize the sale of pot to anyone 21 or older and provide for its taxation, but Ornelas said that was not a consideration.
"I didn't take that into account. This investigation has been going on for some time. I'm not worried about politics. We're worried about doing the right thing," he said.
